Mark Hoge

President & CEO



Mark began his experience in the business field at a very young age, he was always fascinated in the way business impacts society. Mark started his first company at the ripe age of 21 while attending the University of Idaho, and also was an active member the Sigma Chi Fraternity. During his time in the organization, he was appointed to the Executive Board Recruitment Chair where he initially found his passion for recruiting like-minded and success-driven individuals, so much so that he lead his chapter to win the prestigious Peterson Significant Chapter Award, which is the highest honor that the Fraternity bestows upon an undergraduate chapter. The award recognizes excellent performance by chapters in all major areas of operation and programming. Mark also later became more involved with entrepreneurship and decided to join the University’s business start-up competition. After winning first place, Mark went on to participate in more competitions before he was introduced to the world of marketing. Today, Mark is the head of one of the fastest growing marketing companies in the DC Metropolitan area. His leadership has aided the growth of the company's expansion to 10 locations, partnering with five different Fortune 500 clients since the incorporation of Zerin Business Consulting, Inc. in 2010.  Zerin is projected to add ten more locations by the end of 2019. Mark is fully invested in Zerin’s next goal to become the fastest growing organization in the industry by creating more value for its clients than has been done before.
